Pentax Optio M30 announcement clippings

The Optio M series compact digital camera exterior has been redesigned.  Powered by an exclusive ultra-thin battery and featuring a miniaturized circuit board, the M30 body is a slim 0.7 inches (18mm). A high-quality aluminum alloy texture gives the camera a sophisticated design.
With a high resolution of 7.1 effective mega pixels and high-performance PENTAX lens, the Optio M30 realizes clear, high-quality images.  The Optio M30 also features a 3X optical zoom lens with a focal range covering angles of view equivalent to those of a 38-114mm lens in 35mm format, which is ideal for a broad spectrum of subjects from landscapes, through sightseeing photographs, to portraits.
